Amazon Adventures

Description

Amazon Adventures will enable pupils to begin to recognise the issues and challenges facing future generations concerning the loss of the rainforest, with particular reference to the Amazon rainforest. Having located the Amazon rainforest in the world and in South America, they investigate the physical, human and environmental geography of the rainforest through a variety of activities including a focus on the Caboclo river people: real people living a life dependent on the rainforest and its resources yet very much connected to the modern world. The unit ends with an active problem-solving session in which pupils use their acquired skills and knowledge to present to an audience the possible consequences of not securing a sustainable future for the rainforests.
